For the in-store event, each band member will pick a song from the record to talk about. Morning Shift is the Rangers 14th studio album. It was produced by Darrell Scott, engineered by Dave Sinko, and recorded in Bat Cave, N.C., a historical refuge settled near a long-forgotten crossroads of Southern Appalachia. “This was the perfect space to feel confident in expanding upon that Carolina sound, the perfect runway to let their well-oiled machine do what it does best: craft stories from the ground up, as a unit,” according to the Rangers’ website.
On this record, the GRAMMY-winners tell stories that both honor their roots and expand upon the living art of bluegrass music, all while solidifying their reputation as some of the most influential songwriters in Americana today. Morning Shift also marks the band’s first album with new member Aaron Burdett on guitar and vocals, bringing a soul-stirring element to the Rangers’ mastery of mountain music. Burdett is an award-winning singer-songwriter and a student of folk tradition providing a fresh, emotional context to the Rangers’ songbook.
ABOUT THE BAND: Steep Canyon Rangers is made up of Graham Sharp on banjo and vocals, Mike Guggino on mandolin/mandola and vocals, Aaron Burdett on guitar and vocals, Nicky Sanders on fiddle and vocals, Mike Ashworth on drums and vocals, and Barrett Smith on bass, guitar, and vocals.
